This is my booth display at a carving show a few months ago. The bad thing is that the table is only 6ft long and my display is 8ft long so there is a small 2ft center piece that is not in the display that I usually sit behind that allows me to talk to viewers without an obstructed view.
The rose display in the center was my wife Kathy’s Christmas Present.

Well, so far as I’m concerned I think it looks great. Actually, I m thinking hard about joining into the crafts fair circuit. I haven’t made up my mind yet. For one thing I still have to work full time and in a few weeks I’ll be 62 years old. I only have the weekends to do my woodworking and, unfortunately, crafts fairs are generally on the weekends. If I do it I have made up my mind that I’ll have to do something constructive while I’m there like chip carving or whittling or maybe just carving. So I’ll have to have someone with me to help deal with the customers or else I won’t be able to justify it. I need to find someone that maybe is retired and perhaps makes something like candles or soap or some other thing that would justify their time. Because of the way the government has wrecked our economy I’m not sure that my social security will be there so I figure that I’ll have to find some sort of way to support myself and my wife. Right now she has a good job and works hard too so I can’t ask her to go to a crafts fair on the weekends. It wouldn’t be fair to her. You have to figure in all of the costs that are involved because there is no such a thing as a free lunch so everything has to be done on a businesslike basis and turn a profit – else it’s not good for anyone. I wish you the best. What you have done really looks good.

Thanks for sharing. Always nice to see another set up. My wife and I are planning to do at least 2 if not 3 craft fairs this year. We are currently working on the set up that we will use.
